Singer admits she was 'manipulative' with drugs


Demi Lovato has revealed she was once so hooked on cocaine that she couldn’t last for more than an hour without it.

The Skyscraper singer says her addiction was at its worst after going to rehab for ’emotional and physical issues’ in 2010 and admits she secretly carried the class A substance around with her.

[It’s] something I’ve never talked about before, but with my drug use I could hide it to where I would sneak drugs,’ says Demi, 21.

I couldn’t go without 30 minutes to an hour without cocaine and I would bring it on airplanes.

I would smuggle it basically and just wait until everyone in first class would go to sleep and I would do it right there. I’d sneak to the bathroom and I’d do it.

That’s how difficult it got and that was even with somebody [with me], I had a sober companion, somebody who was watching me 24/7 and living with me [and] I was able to hide it from them as well.’

Demi – who has also battled an eating disorder and alcohol problems – admits her illness caused to be became very calculating.

I’m very, very good at manipulating people and that was something that I did in my disease, I would manipulate everyone around me,’ the US X Factor judge tells Access Hollywood.

There were times I would just continue to lie, so that everything looked OK on the outside.’
